all that glitters...Hello Monday

I am a sucker for sparkle, smitten with it really...

I remember glee at the induction of the word "bling" into the official Oxford Dictionary with the annual "new words of  2003" not from its Hip-Hop origins, but as a devotee to glittery things...
So hello Monday and what a week it was...I am finally able to share just a few pics, a mere peek at my pilgrimage to Tinsel Trading in its new sweet and petite shopping location on Lex and 63rd...
I was there to get some image for my Business of the Studio column in Jo Pakham's Where Women Create magazine...
And I loved every sparkly, vintage minute...
(...and how cool was it that afterwards -- and though briefly -- I could meet my friends and Earth Angels supporters, Bonnie & Loren...some of you know them as our amazing Earth Angels CA ground crew!!!)
 Look at this wall of trims, I might drool...

 Here are some of Wendy Addison's new designs tucked among the magic....
 These were my faves, vintage beret labels...I wanted them ALL...


...ahhh I am still in the afterglow of the glitter....

So....Hello Monday and hello adventures, I drove through freezing rain to get to Tinsel Trading and yep, it was worth it...

Hello to making our worlds sparkle with what old and found...

Hello artful friends,  put this on your list of must sees when you are in NYC...
 
Hello Wendy Addison and Marcia Ceppos...see you next week at your workshop/studio to get the rest of the shots for this feature....

Hello to life at home, and lots of baking and movie nights...they are the winter treats...

Hello to all of you have a super week...what are you up to???

xxoo Jen
